    That was a good deal. It was also already claimed when both of you posted!

    I'm assuming you're talking about a radius considerably outside the diameter of the table... Without simultaneous two axis movement you'd need to make up a large arm anchored elsewhere to hold the...

    Jim I haven't done any refurbishing to my own table other than getting the stuck worm disengagement loose. It was already in near new condition other than a little worn paint. Backlash on the worm is...

    Happy to share, Lee! The thanks should really go to Jim though. I couldn't find squat until I ran across that old 2009 PM post from him and inquired about it. I'll set up a dropbox file and link it...

    I have a manual already scanned if anyone needs it. Got mine courtesy of bosleyjr, and thanks very much again sir. I too would still like to see what Matt has to see if there's any additional info.

    I'd say you could trust it if you test it first. Run it up to 600+° after you braze it and then beat it around a good bit against some wood blocks and see if it holds. I might try a weld instead,...

    If the crush button at the end of the locking screw mates with a threaded adjuster for locking position it must not rotate with the locking screw - the one piece stuff is locked together, won't...

    What exactly is this lathe? Not very good practice to run feeds off of the leadscrew threads. Anyways, watch your two piece half nut bracket design - unless you have room to add a lot more meat there...

    It will be fine as long as you're not running it at a heavy load like near stall for long periods and you have the current limiting set up correctly.

    To heck with the Holy #[email protected]*! about the model machine tools... Did you see the estimate for some of the trains?! Good god.

    I've got one of these that came with a mill I bought. It's definitely handy, but if I were buying one today I'd look for one that also had 5C collet capability.

    The diamond compound will work but it will dull the CBN grit more than SiC compound. The whole purpose of using the loose grit lapping compound is to dig/scoop out the proud CBN particles (sticking...
